I have been selling at shows for a few years. I often have guys come up to me and offer to sell me wood, or say they have a lot of wood and want to know if I am interested in any. I have made some good connections that way. Sometimes nothing comes of it if they just take my card. I often need to get their number and hunt for them. I think having pictures and prices of your wood might be the way to go.. Walk around and talk to the woodcrafters. The expense of entering the show with a booth might be a big chunk out of your sales and you would be stuck there the whole time. Look at as a way to sell wood. Remember that wood has to be a small expense for me in a product because my time is such a big factor. I have about 10-15 dollars of wood in a box (4-5 hours of time)(50-150.00),or cutting board(3 hours) that sells for 50-100 dollars. Good luck. Hope to see some wood here or on woodbarter.
